Why The Full Moon Is Responsible For Insomnia

In popular culture, the Full Moon is held responsible for a number of strange behaviours, from spikes in crime to bouts of madness and mood swings. We are sensitive entities, which is why the Moon has such a huge impact on us, including troubling sleeping. Swiss researchers have recently confirmed that the Full Moon is one of the root causes of insomnia and even has an effect on the quality of our rest. Susan Taylor reveals more information on this revelation!

What is the link between the Full Moon and insomnia?

If you've been pointing the finger at too much screen time before bed, you can now turn your attention to the Full Moon. scientists agree that the most common explanation for insomnia is that our internal biological clock is linked to the phases of the Moon.

Many of us find that it takes us longer to get to sleep on the night of a Full Moon and that the quality of our sleep is often inferior. This is due to a diminution of melatonin, the hormone that helps you sleep. If this is your case, scientists call it being ‘lunar rhythmic’ and it means our bodies function around the phases of the moon.

The Full Moon and Astrology

For Susan Taylor, there is a strong link between insomnia and the Full Moon. According to our specialists, the stars are greatly affected by the Full Moon. It is often a time when people will reveal something or suddenly see the light and this is because the Full Moon encourages a less reflective and more instinctive feeling... These emotions are reflected during the nighttime and cause for a restless sleep.

Are you sensitive to the Full Moon?

Certain people are more sensitive than others to the effects of the Full Moon in the same way that some people are more receptive to electromagnetic waves (wifi, telephone etc). In order to determine if you’re more sensitive to the Full Moon keep a sleep diary close to your bed so you can track your sleep patterns. Things to note;

  • The time you fall asleep
  • The duration of your sleep
  • The feelings you have in your dreams: uneasy, tired, relaxed…
  • The nature of your dreams; scary, stressful, loved up…  (this can be an excellent indictor)

By keeping this diary you’ll begin to see patterns in the way you sleep and determine if you’re someone who is affected by the Full Moon.

How to sleep well on nights of the Full Moon

As you probably know, if you want to beat insomnia, leading a healthy lifestyle is essential! Here are some steps to a restful night.

  • On the food side, absolutely avoid sugars. Also try to avoid gluten, which disturbs digestion.
  • Place blackout curtains in all rooms to prevent the brightness from disturbing your sleep.
  • Keep your room below 21°C.
  • Set a digital curfew. The blue light from the screens inhibits the production of melatonin.
  • Only go to bed when you are sleepy.
